Your words they never spoke so clear to me
The way they did that day
I always dreamed we'd be forever
I always thought it'd be ok
I took for granted all you gave me
I never thought you'd go away
Was this not love that we were sharing
I thought love never went away

Say goodbye to memories
Cause I have said so long
Say goodbye to all our dreams
It's time now to

I see now this is where our story ends
So just move on I'm told
Today I loved someone for three years
Tomorrow learn to just let go
To have your best friend always be there
Then one day to see her go
My world is falling all around me
And girl you're all I know

Say goodbye to memories
Cause I have said so long
Say goodbye to all our dreams
It's time now to move on

And on and on I've tried to
Let go
My mind can not forget you
You're all I know

Say goodbye to memories
Cause I have said so long
Say goodbye to all our dreams
It's time now to move on

    General CommentTo have your best friend always be there
    then one day to see her go
    how well its funny(?) all around me
    and girl your all i know


    i think the 3rd line goes "how well its falling all around me"

    General Commenti thought it was, my world is a falling around me.

    but the song seems sort of obvious. like the title 'move on'. both people are trying to move on from a past relationship. He thought things were going fine and she just said something and ended it for whatever reason. and it's all about him saying how he's over it and it's time they both move on (but he's just saying that)

    Say goodbye to memories
    Cause I have said so long
    Say goodbye to all our dreams
    It's time now to move on

    he's trying to tell her that he's moved on and all that.


    but then heree --->And on and on I've tried to
    Let go
    My mind can not forget you
    You're all I know


    he's saying how there were just so many memories and he's tried so hard but he just can't forget her. but at the end of the song he decides its time to actually move on.

    General Commentwow y are there like no comments? This song is amazing! i agree with musicx3...this song is all about a relationship where the guy thought everything was going smoothly and the girl just broke it off. I think it's also about that feeling when someone you thought you loved has hurt you, and every sane rational part of your being is telling u to move on. At the same time though, for some reason you just can't let go. I love the line "Today I loved someone for three years, tomorrow just let go" because it basically defines the whole song. She wants him to be able to just get over it instantly, the way she's seemed to, but to him it's just ridiculous that he can go from having so much to having nothing so quickly

    General Commenti agree with the meanings already posted. and i love this song so much, because i had the cd for awhile, but last summer my boyfriend of over a year just broke it off suddenly and told me he was over it, and i was devastated. i remembered hearing this song on the cd and went back and listened, and it totally felt like it was made for me.

    General Commentthis song could apply to a close freindship, between a guy and a girl, gone sour
